Common Ideas in All Waste Management Definitions
  • When the waste hierarchy is discussed, it refers
    to reducing, reusing and recycling which refer to
    waste management strategies.

5
  • Reducing

Is at the top of the hierarchy because it focuses
on preventing the damage that is done by tossing
trash in the garbage.
6
  • Reuse

In the hierarchy because it minimizes the damage
done by waste.
7
  • Recycling

Including composting. After this is recovery of
materials. 
8
  • Disposal

A last resort for waste.
The waste hierarchy represents the progression of
a material through the stages in the pyramid that
follow sequentially.
9
Core idea of the waste management definition is
the life-cycle of products
DESIGN MANUFACTURE USE WASTE HIERARCHY
10
Then it will go through the waste hierarchy 
reusing products recovering them recycling
waste waste disposal
11
Each of these stages in the life cycle presents
an opportunity to intervene with policy, to make
us question the need for a product, to reduce the
potential of waste, and to extend the period of
time that we use it. 
12
The third idea of the waste management definition
is resource efficiency
 This idea is centered around reducing the
negative impact of our production and consumption
from using raw materials to our last use and
disposal.
13
Polluter Pays Principle
One last idea completing the waste management is
this principle dictates that the party that
pollutes must pay for the negative impact it
causes on the earth.
